Police told residents to stay inside their houses as they searched for the gunman in the town of Canonsburg about 25 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.
There were no immediate details on the officers’ conditions or what led up to the attack at about 4 a.m. local time.
One of the officers was flown to a hospital in Pittsburgh and the other was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Canonsburg, WPXI.com reported.
Authorities said schools would open two hours later than usual as the investigation continued.
Police officials were not immediately available for comment.

Trump isn’t getting enough credit for being ‘courageous’ in his coronavirus response: Ben Carson
In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News Thursday night, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson complained that President Donald Trump is not getting enough credit for how "courageous" he was in his response to the coronavirus pandemic.
"Absolutely, they're not getting the credit for it," said Carson. "And for that sake, you know, neither is the president getting the credit for being incredibly courageous. You know, imposing the travel ban so early on. Now you have people saying, oh, you were too late. The same people who were telling people to go out and have fun and to mix."
Only 5,500 rapid COVID-19 tests touted by Trump are being deployed — for the entire country: report

A coronavirus test made by Abbott Laboratories and introduced with considerable fanfare by President Donald Trump in a Rose Garden news conference this week is giving state and local health officials very little added capacity to perform speedy tests needed to control the COVID-19 pandemic.
“That’s a whole new ballgame,” Trump said. “I want to thank Abbott Labs for the incredible work they’ve done. They’ve been working around-the-clock.”
Yet a document circulated among officials at the Department of Health and Human Services and the Federal Emergency Management Agency this week shows that state and local public health labs were set to receive a total of only 5,500 coronavirus tests from the giant manufacturer of medical devices, diagnostics and drugs, according to emails obtained by Kaiser Health News.
